Project CARE is a brief, online study. The goal of our study is to better understand teens' self-harm and risk for suicide. We hope that by collecting pictures and information about scars, we will be able to build a tool to help doctors and other healthcare workers better understand self-injury and improve teens' mental health.

This study is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
